: there are the schumer, and dick durbin, myself, john mccain, marco rube bee yo. -- rubio. host: have you gotten more that wants to join your effort at this point? guest: not people who want to join but they are sympathetic about what we're doing and i think if they see the legislation they will come on board. once they see what is required for someone to advance their status to get on a path to citizenship they will say if this works with the rule of law. it is something that is humane, realistic, and something that we just have to do. host: do you have people on the house side working with you? guest: there is a group working on their own for a while, a bipartisan group. it is people like biden, many others have been involved in this effort. they are getting closer, i think, to something like the senate is doing and that certainly helps. host: senator from arizona is our guest. we have our phone lines up if you would like to dial in. we have set aside our fourth line for illegal immigrants. we would like to hear your story and we're going to begin with a caller on that line. alex from germantown, m

the gramm who is running for reelection in 2014. they note that senator gramm, senator john mccain will meet with the president today to talk about immigration reform. the front page of the new york times, republicans signing a brief in support of gay marriage. 75 people have signed an amicus brief, a friend-of-the-court brief, before the supreme court takes up a california ballot initiative at baring same-sex marriage. -- there are republicans who have signed this would not previously talked about the issue, mega wittman, who supported proposition 8 originally, congresswoman lee some of florida, richard hanna of new york, stephen hadley -- back to your phone calls, sam in west point, new york, he works for the department of defense. what is your take on sequester? caller: well, there is waste in the federal government, but there is also waste in the private sector. you cannot quantify it. we have already had cut. we have had about 5-10% cuts. mostly for people who have not -- have been hired. we had contract employees, and they are now on their way out. we have not had cut since the clinton
john mccain, who needs no introduction. >> but he always appreciate it. [laughter] i thank senator enhofe for his attention tot his issue. he pointed out the devastating effect of sequestration. if it is implemented, it will cut every ship, truck, a tank, research and development across the board. the secretary of defense panetta, a man that i admire greatly, called sequestration a meat ax approach. i think it is important to note, according to one economic analysis, it costs a loss of $350 in full-time direct jobs, 650,000 indirect job losses. that is a lot of jobs. in these difficult times. secretary panetta said, "this has become a very serious threat to our national security." para chairman of the joint chiefs of staff says the same thing. in the late 1970's, after the vietnam war, the chief of staff testified before congress that we had a "hollow army," which then caused the attention of the american people and one of the reasons why ronald reagan was elected to be president of the united states, because of our rapid decline in national defense that took place previously. we h
